Started this several months ago, finally got it done, all 1083 pieces of it. Not sure what to call it, so I just came up with a big chalice bowl. My buddies Woodshaver, and Bob Wemm from Australia, have been waiting patiently to see it. The domestic woods in it are Ash,Cherry, and Black walnut along with their exotic brothers of Yellow heart, Purpleheart, Koa, and Black Hawaiian Mahogany. It stands about 9&1/2” tall, and the bowl part itself is 7&1/2” diameter by 5” deep. finished with several coats of Tung oil and polished with a couple of coats of Howards feed-n-Wax I am thinking of adding some kind of domed type lid of Koa, and a small Black Mahogany final, if I do, I will post the finished project later.

Comments and critiques welcome.

Very nice complicated piece.
A chalice is defined as a ceremonial drinking cup (often used in religious ceremonies) and a bowl is just a bowl.
So after all that work I would fill it with a sacramental wine and drink up.

Don,
Finally, and well worth the wait.
It looks beautiful. The mind boggles at the thought of so many pieces.
Congratulations on a wonderful job.
We’re half way home.

Bob.
